I don’t know much about computers or the internet, but I think my problem has to do with something called DNS. Sometimes when I try to view a website, I get some redirect page from Comcast saying that the page cannot be found. I realize that sometimes websites go down, but the problem usually fixes itself in a few minutes and it almost never happens when I’m at work and using a different ISP. Thus, I suspect that when my computer sends a single down the tube that connects my computer to Comcast, sometimes the signal gets lost before Comcast is able to direct it to the System of Tubes that is the Internet.
I’ve heard of people using alternate DNS servers/lists/programs/Idon’tknowwtfI’mtalkingabout/etc., and that this has resulted in goodness, but I don’t know if this applies to my particular problem.
I may be asking the wrong questions or using the wrong terminology.
